The crib was placed
On the lawn with care
But alas Baby Jesus
Is no longer there.
Yes, the stealing Baby Jesus from the crib season is in full swing this year right across the globe. From one in Waterford, Ireland which was later found badly damaged, to the serial Baby Jesus snatcher in Port Angeles who took six of them. One bright spark who posted a picture of a stolen statue on her Facebook page and bragged about taking it, is now facing charges in Fredericksburg. Over in Macomb County, MI, they had a new variation this year. Besides stealing the Baby Jesus, they also posed lighted reindeer ornaments in sexual positions. If you are placing a Baby Jesus outside your house, make sure it is fitted with a GPS device and install some hidden cameras.
Merry Christmas everyone, or if you object to Jesus being include:
Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays, Enjoy the Winter Solstice
A recent poll by CNN found that 61% of Americans believe that Osama bin Laden is burning in hell. Only 5% said that they do not believe in hell. It always amazes me that so many Christians, who follow the message of love from Jesus, believe in a God that would have a soul tormented for all eternity rather than offering oblivion. Yes, there is a loving God who wants me to love him, but if I choose not to believe he will roast me forever. A recent book “Love Wins”, by Rob Bell a pastor of Mars Hill bible church in Michigan, addressed this very issue. Another pastor, Chad Holtz, of a Methodist Church in North Carolina wrote a note in Facebook, backing this book. Two days later following complaints from members of the church, Chad was dismissed from his position. Get the full story in the Times Free Press.
Personally, I believe that hell was invented by the church to help control people. If there is a God who torments souls forever, He doesn’t sound like the kind of being I could love. If I’m wrong, I’ll see you in hell.
